Two Hours Traffic: Little Jabs

Two Hours Traffic
Little Jabs
Bumstead Records [2007/2008]

Fire Drills Review:
Little Jabs is the sophomore record from Canada's Two Hours Traffic and was released up north last year. It has just recently found its way down to us and Little Jabs is a nice collection of alternative pop rock that is very reminiscent of Big Star. Two Hours Traffic have already had their songs appear in Gossip Girl, The OC and One Tree Hill while Little Jabs was in the Canadian College Top 10 and was a nomination for the 2008 Polaris Music Prize. The bottom line is that Little Jabs is a well thought out and catchy record and Two Hours Traffic are a band to watch for some breakthrough success in the months to come.

Key Track: “Stuck For The Summer”

Band With Similar Fire: Nada Surf
